Here’s how every DeKalb precinct voted in the 6th (for Jon Ossoff)


UPDATE: See how DeKalb County voted in the 6th district runoff on June 20.

Jon Ossoff, the Democrat who led Tuesday’s special election for the 6th District Congressional seat, won every precinct in DeKalb County.

Not that he didn’t have an upper hand facing a crowded pool of Republican contenders. 

Karen Handel, the Republican former Georgia secretary of state, was second in most precincts, as detailed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution map below. The two now are heading to a June 20 runoff to see who’ll replace Tom Price, who left the seat to be President Donald Trump’s secretary of health and human services.
